not in our garden, we have everything and plenty of cover for small birds  and rats are really a lot worse especially when they decide they might move in with you!

Mulch for clay

try well rotted leaf mould and garden compost and dare I say it peat and keep digging.My soil is very heavy clay and it has taken  years of input to the stage it is now where when not sodden it is very good but it needs consent in put and breaking up.I include seaweed ,comfrey ,nettles and drowned weeds,its certainly a challenge.

that's the best cure,our local cat who use to catch the rats has moved ,so I hope they don't come back.

I think herbs make a fine display in  a box as long as the drainage is right and plenty of sun although mints tend to be thugs so best avoided.

lavender scent or water and make sure you get rid of any stagnant water where they breed  and some people use lemon and elderflower spray as I do when riding to avoid horse flies and they can bite.!
